All City Cross Country Meet

Posted on: November 3, 2016

What a great first season of middle school Cross Country! Many great things happened for our athletes, and everyone is looking forward to next year’s season.

We are so proud of our students for managing their school work, family obligations, and other extra curricular activities, and still making the time to train after school on a daily basis. Over the course of the year students set and achieved personal goals, learned sportsmanship, and made friends with people they might never have otherwise talked to.

Our final home event, the Albany All City Meet, was attended by all the middle schools in the greater Albany School district. It was the culminating meet of the season for our athletes and many of them set new personal records.

The girls’ race.

North Albany placed first as a team in the girls’ division.

The boys’ race.

The boys placed third. The division was was won by TimberRidge.

We are already looking forward to next season with uniforms, more meets, and improving from this year’s experiences. More information will be available this spring.

Last week on Tuesday, October 18 the bands held their first concert. All of our middle school bands performed to a pretty full house. It was a great evening with wonderful music. Here is one piece from each bands’ performance for your enjoyment. It is difficult to express beautiful music with words, so you can experience some of it for yourself.

Then next band concert is scheduled for Tuesday December 6. The fall musical “Elf Jr.” will have 4 performances starting on Thursday, December 8 through Saturday December, 10. The first choir concert will be on Thursday, December 15. The North Albany Jazz Festival is on January 21, 2017.  Hopefully you will be able to join us for a performance or two.

Enjoy the following pieces.
